After a long and busy week, my husband and I decided we needed a good family outing. If you know us, we’re both homebodies and we like to relax. We’re not your go-go-go kind of people. So, as you can imagine our idea of a nice family outing is one where we can have fun while relaxing with one another. We decided to drive to Tillamook near the coast of Oregon and visit my husband’s grandmother. We don’t make it out there as often as we would like too, but it is always a treat. We had a wonderful visit, ate delicious food, and got spoiled rotten. If you should ever find yourself in Tillamook Oregon, don’t think about leaving without visiting the Tillamook Cheese Factory to sample cheese and eat truly the best ice cream ever! Also, if you’re looking for a good bowl of clam chowder, the Blue Heron Deli has it mastered. Let me put out a disclaimer that I am in no way receiving any compensation for promoting these places, I am just a connoisseur of great tasting food.
On to other matters, I have a simple tutorial for you guys on how to give your jewelry a quick update. I mean simple as in you take a piece of jewelry, give it a few coats of spray paint, then wah-lah out comes a jewelry transformation! It is really that simple, but delivers very satisfying results. I took a wood bead necklace that I hardly ever wear and gave it a whole new look. The wood bead necklace by itself never really fit in with my style, but now it’s a real statement piece. I dare you to give it a try!
We’d love to see your creations, so send us a picture of your refashioned piece of jewelry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
